• Meet with our horses in a beautiful natural environment
• Learn their language and enter their horse world
• Build a rapport with our horses - entering a relationship which is power with, not power over.
Our Horse Whispering sessions are open to all young people aged 9 years and over who love horses. Unlike the sessions we offer in equine assisted experiential learning with therapeutic interventions for young people who are struggling, in these sessions your daughter or son only needs to have a strong desire to be with horses to qualify!
You can book a one off session or come regularly. When you book we will first explore how your daughter or son would like to work with the horses. This can be a one to one session, or you can organise a group of between 2 and 3 friends or siblings. We don't offer horse riding but a desire to ride as well is only natural, and we are happy to recommend a local riding school. "Art of Horse Whispering" philosophy
Becoming a horse whisperer takes a life time of being around horses, there are no quick routes, but many of the great horse whisperers' developed their skills by getting the chance to learn how to connect with horses in nature - usually from childhood and that is the part we explore.
In modern times not that many of us get the chance to grow up around horses and just "be" with them and learn from them. In these sessions our intention is to give children and young people the opportunity to do just that. This is a chance to learn horse connection in away that is safe, informative, intuitive and creative. They will not be riding the horses or learning to train or control them, instead, by paying attention to the horses subtle nuances, they will be learning to become their co-creative partners.
We are based in a beautiful natural environment of fields and woodland and some nature connection or "Forest School" type exercises will also form part of the session.What's the difference between Equine assisted experiential learning and the "Art of Horse Whispering?"
At Awareness with Horses both the Art of Horse Whispering and Equine Assisted Experiential Learning is about stepping into the world of the horse and exploring the horse human connection intuitively and creatively. But in our Art of Horse Whispering sessions the process is less about having an agenda and more about the whole experience that emerges, as your child learns to build a relationship with the horse/s. The only intent is that the horsemanship skills they learn will stay with them. In either an equine assisted experiential learning or the "Art of Horse Whispering" session children and young people learn experientially how to connect with the horses, how to care for and groom the horses, how to lead, and how to work with the horse at liberty. They will also learn how horses communicate, and enter into a field of herd mindfulness, this can naturally help with many life skills. So although our Art of Horse Whispering sessions are not framed to offer therapy, the horses by their natural biological make-up will be asking us to stay connected, authentic and mindful and this can be very therapeutic. Connecting with horses in this way can also help develop self confidence and a greater trust in self and others, by developing presence, integrity and congruency.
